i got a Linkstation Mini (WSX1.0TL/R1) and installed Debian on it. I used the wiki-article (http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Debian_Lenny_on_LS-WXL
) to do that.
The installation works proper. I got following output after the installation and ssh login:
nas:~# uname -a
Linux nas 126.96.36.199-svn22059 #67 Mon Sep 13 09:42:55 JST 2010 armv5tel GNU/Linux
But the next step ("Building the Debian kernel
") of the wiki-article doesn't work to me. First
I tried the "Native compilation". I did every step of the wiki-article ... indeed, the LS worked approx. 1,5h to compile the kernel.
Unfortunately, i couldn't enjoy my new kernel after reboot, because the LS-Mini didn't boot
I set a static IP to the LS-Mini - so I thought, OK, let's try a port scan, maybe there is a sign of life ... but nothing :-/
After reverting the uImage the LS-Mini boot again with the old kernel. Second
I tried the "Cross compilation". I used Ubuntu 10.04 and the tool chain from CodeSourcery ... the kernel was compiled in 10 min, WOW
And again after replacing the uImage and modules ... the LS-Mini didn't boot proper
Just for the record: I didn't install the blstools because of the potential disruption.
Unfortunately, I got no serial output. The wiki-article (http://buffalo.nas-central.org/wiki/Add_a_Serial_port_to_the_LS_MINI
) doesn't work.
Maybe the sample config or patch doesn't work with the LS-Mini
wget http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=YKpzXfey -O patch.lswxl
wget http://pastebin.com/download.php?i=WmKTfEGb -O config.lswxl
Has anyone any advice?
Please help :-/
